About the Artist: Lukas Godaire uses the natural world as the center of his inspiration. He uses his thoughts and visions to dream up a landscape that is full of vibrant colors along with styles found in both abstract and realism to create a sense of wonder throughout his paintings. Lukas graduated from Worcester State University in 2012 with a B.A. in the Visual & Performing Arts where he used his talents in painting and music to provide an ambient atmosphere amongst his artwork.
Black & White - Worcester Alliance of Photographers
City Hall Gallery, 455 Main Street
We live in a vibrant, colorful world. Taking away that color conjures memories of an earlier era before color film, but black and white photography is far from obsolete. Making photos in black and white forces photographers to ignore color and make images where light and shadow, textures, and shapes as defined solely by tone. For this exhibit, WAP challenged photographers to slow down and take a look at the world without hue.
